Our clients come from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds and their food preferences vary drastically. Many of them have also suffered from years of yo-yo dieting and as we age we also suffer from metabolic slow down. For that reason, we learned that one particular ‘diet’ was not effective. Instead, we use a client’s bodyfat and activity level to determine the proportions and quantities of macro nutrients they should be eating. For example, your goal might be 200 g of protein, 100g of carbs, and 50 g of good fats daily. There are many apps you can get for your smart phone or mobile device that easily calculate the macronutrients in anything you eat, so you can log this throughout the day and stay within your goal.
What should your macro goals be?
The specific quantities you should be eating vary depending on your age, weight, body fat, and activity level. There are too many variations to give an accurate formula here. Your fitness professional can help with that. However, once you determine your optimal level of protein, most of our clients achieve their goals by consuming 50% of their protein numbers in carbohydrates and 50% of the carbohydrate number in fat (75% if you’re over 40). Sound confusing? It’s really not, but we can walk you through this until it makes perfect sense!
